    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Easy apply online, they always on indeed which is why the turnover rate is so high. The entire job offer is a huge waste of time. This is the worst job interview I had ever experienced in my damn life. (only my New York life interview was more of a waste of time than this).

    Don't waste your time like I did. All scam you are paid by commission only. no base salary even tho it said you get a monthly salary of 2K.

    first of all you pay for your exams ( at least NYI pays for your test) . Also you pay to be there NOT get paid. its $700 to be at your NYC cubicle a month. also you have to buy their crappy laptop.

    This is coming from someone who has her damn time wasted and hit on by the perverted interviewer. actually the guy at the front desk was more perverted.

    Horrible!!!!! The interviewer was very very rude from the second he answered the phone, it was impossible to say anything. I havr never had such an uncomfortable interview in my life. Needless to say, I will not be applying for a position with this company.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Arlington, VA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Four-Step process, first a phone interview, online orientation in a group setting, an in-person interview, finally they have you prepare a business plan and present it. This last one was pretty surprising, but came after an extensive background check.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The hiring process is quite lengthy and literally takes months at best. There are multiple interviews with hiring manager and testing for the series 7 as well as 63/65 and 66. If you are willing to pay for all your licensure completely out of pocket up front with the hopes of getting an offer to contract, this is for you.

    Financial Professional Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Syracuse, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    They really take their time to vet candidates. The interview is in 5 stages. Everything from a one on one phone discussion to panel interview with senior management. Compared to other firms I interviewed with, AXA was the only one that was truly trying to determine in they wanted to make an investment in me. They were not chomping at the bits to add another advisor to their production sheets. They only want quality standouts. Very in-depth interview process!

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Charlotte, NC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I started through a recruiter, watched an online presentation laying out the introductory information. I was asked to contact the recruiter after the presentation if I still had interest. Went through the interview process which consisted of 3 interviews, each about an hour and a half to two hours. Grueling but very informative and I learned a lot from the interviewer which is more than I can say for some other companies I have been applying to.
